I have a '99 323is that hitches or sputters when I am accelerating at
RPMs less than 2000. If I give it a little gas, it is less likely to do
it than if I give it a lot (but what fun is that?) I have put in two
containers of Chevron Techron injection cleaner, but that hasn't seemed
to help. The car has been doing this for several weeks. At one point -
and this has only happened once - the check engine light came on and
the car ran very rough. Normally, the car only sputters when I am in
those low RPMs. It idles fine. This started about three weeks or a
month after I had an inspection 1 in February - that may be unrelated.
Thank you, Mick. I was going to have it checked out fairly soon. Do you
remember what the cost of that was, and if it was a quick fix? Sounds
simple and pretty cheap, I just don't want to be in for any surprises.
